Carrie Fisher

Star Wars

James Blunt

At the Hay Festival in Wales, British singer James Blunt spoke about his friend Carrie Fisher, revealing that her efforts to meet the demanding physical expectations for her return as Princess Leia in “Star Wars” contributed to her death in 2016.

Blunt described how Fisher, under pressure to be thin for the role, had resumed using drugs, which he believes led to her fatal heart attack.

He recounted spending time with her the day before she died and discussed the broader industry pressures on women regarding aging and appearance.

Fisher’s toxicology report revealed multiple substances, including cocaine and heroin, were in her system at the time of her death.

Her daughter, Billie Lourd, has expressed that Fisher’s openness about her struggles should inspire others to seek help and advocate for mental health support.

Blunt also shared a personal regret, admitting that he chose to join Fisher in drug use rather than confronting her about it, a decision that has strained his relationship with her daughter.
